      Flop: ($8.50, 2 players) 4:diamond: 6:diamond: 5:heart:
      SB checks, Hero bets $5.00, SB calls $5.00

      Turn: ($18.50, 2 players) A:club:
      SB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($18.50, 2 players) 3:diamond:
      SB checks, Hero bets $13.50, SB calls $13.50

      Preflop: standard open from the bu and given the implied odds i had to call the sb 3bet.
      flop: I flop a str8 draw. It was an obvious me for me b/c of FE+equity. when he c/c i thought he usually had an Ax hand
      turn: this card sucked for me. I was pretty sure that he hit an ace so based upon my hand reading i think i have to check even though i do have equity.
      river: I hit my str8 so its an obvious bet for value. One thing i am curious about is what to do if he c/rai. The flush also hit and i dont see him having a 7 in his range all that often so i guess it would probally be a b/f even though i have a really strong hand.

      Most of the time i think he can be holding overpairs he want to pot control such a bad flop for him.Sure he holds there Ax type of hands with which he will be check/calling although i doubt he is going on with such a hands without at least backdoor flushdraw or a flushdraw.Turn is definitely a check you don't got enough equity to bet versus overpairs or Ax type of hands and he can even think of raising and going all in on this turn since the board is very drawy.River is a good bet but if you face all in it's either going to be bluff or a flush so he is super polarized there even though the flush consists of great range not only 1 or 2 hands i'd probably call given the thoughts that he will cbet Ax type of hands which have flushdraw because he can go broke with them.

      well played.
      Like flop bet, since he would often c/c there with Ax hand that you can get value
      Standard check behind on the turn and easy valuebet on the river
